The sculpture is sound and freestanding. The surface is uneven in keeping with the Artist's materials, although there are fine and stable cracks running around the figure's right thigh, below her right arm and breast and to the base by her left knee. There is a tiny possible speck of loss to the base of the sculpture beneath the toes of her right foot. There is a repaired crack running across the top of her lower back. There is light wear to the underside of the base.
Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals areas of florescence around the aforementioned repaired crack. There is a finish to the surface which makes the florescence difficult to read. There are accretions of a silica or rubber based substance in the crevices of the work.
The sculpture is freestanding.
